[en] Creativity plays an important role in education and on the job market. In this
perspective, the present study addresses the personality profile of creative people in
specific domains of achievement. Literature on creativity is predominantly based
on the analysis of psychology students, artists and scientists. The question which
emerges from the current state of the art concerns the ability to generalize these
findings. Hence, the current study examines additional professional subsamples in
terms of their creative personality. The sample consists of 176 participants (109
women, 66 men, MAge = 24.47, SD = 3.52, age range: 19-39 years). In the general
sample, only the correlation between creativity and autonomy was significant (r =
.16, p < .05). In the sample of psychologists, this correlation was stronger (r = .57,
p < .01). These results suggest the importance of fostering an autonomous working
style.
